While these sites do attract criticism, they also keep things up front among those who use them.
When you find a date on there, you know what you’re getting.
There are thousands of active singles on Date looking to chat right now.
Isn’t this just another “Friendfinder hook-up site”? It does contain lots of erotic photos, as well as promotions for live cam shows and so on.
But underneath that there are real people looking for real encounters.
However what I would say is that most of “the profiles” on there do seem genuine and to have real, ordinary people behind them (you don’t get the feeling of it being packed with model-like airbrushed photos).
Like a lot of other “adult oriented sites”, most of the males on there create free accounts and act like “horny teenage boys”, trying to get laid.
When we think of online dating, we most likely think of sites for singles.
However, the truth is that many attached and even married people are also using the internet as a way to meet new people and to develop relationships.
Upgrading will significantly increase your chances, because unlike the vast majority of men on there who’re trying to “get laid for free”, you have the option to use “open the door” to chat with hot females (who men on free accounts can’t reach). You can place your content (either photos, or videos) into private folders and then, on those you can set your desired access. There just isn’t the same level of privacy options as are available on the two sites above.
In my experience most attractive women will not upgrade – they will just wait for VIP men to contact them. Anyone in your friends list can see your private photos. I found Gleeden to be a bit less active than the other sites, the group areas were often empty and I only got replies to a couple of the emails I sent out.
In the end I gave-up and went to the browse option, but even there you still have several links to click on like area and town before you eventually get to see profiles.
On top of this, the site has a whopping high price tag…
With its explicitly imagery it has a “porno site” feel about it – not ideal for attracting quality female members. Illicit Encounters is big on helping members maintain their privacy, so most members don’t show photos to everyone who’s browsing, but rather only allow members with whom they’ve had online contact to see their photos (by setting passwords).
